Bytes partners with Equinix to deliver new cloud connectivity platform

Friday 18th September 2020

We are delighted to announce our partnership with Equinix – a leading global interconnection and data centre company transforming the digital landscape.

This partnership will enable us to deliver the Bytes Cloud Connectivity Platform, which is powered by Equinix’s cutting-edge technology, and designed to help businesses connect multiple cloud platforms and distributed infrastructure. This is achieved via Equinix Cloud Exchange Fabric® (ECX Fabric®) – an interconnection service allowing enterprises and service providers to connect to a rich ecosystem of the clouds, networks, partners and customers that matter most to their digital businesses.

Benefits of the platform include:

  • Simplicity - all cloud platforms and services accessible through a single portal
  • Security - bypass the public internet and connect privately to cloud providers
  • Performance - dynamic bandwidth allocation for increased application efficiency
  • Agility - deploy, connect and scale resources quickly on demand
  • Global - available in 40+ markets with a repeatable architecture for deployments

Interconnection is fast becoming the key to digital transformation. In fact, Equinix’s 2019-20 Global Tech Trends Survey found 48% of global IT decision-makers believe interconnection is a key facilitator of digital transformation, with 45% seeing it as crucial for their businesses’ survival. It shortens the distance between a company’s users, application and data, directly connecting multiple distributed clouds to vastly improve workload response times. Equinix is at the forefront of this technology, with pioneering solutions to help businesses accelerate transformations and reap the benefits of the digital edge.

Reports state 60% of global GDP will be digitised by 2022, so businesses that increase their investment in cloud connectivity gain a powerful competitive advantage, being more able to push resources to the edge and adopt next generation technologies such as AI, 5G and IoT.

Neil Murphy, Chief Executive Officer at Bytes Technology Group, said: “Our partnership with Equinix reflects our desire as a Cloud First business to increase our investment in cloud services and embrace modern leading-edge technologies. Interconnection will grow rapidly as businesses start adopting next generation solutions. We are excited to be a part of this transition with Equinix – an innovative organisation offering world-class cloud solutions.”

Oren Yehudai, Senior Channel Sales Director, EMEA at Equinix, said: “Bytes has a wealth of experience in cloud computing, particularly with our global alliance partners such as Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure. By offering a joint solution, our mutual customers will benefit from the partnership’s expertise in supporting digital transformation initiatives, including the adoption of hybrid multicloud strategies. We can enable our customers to improve performance, reduce costs and maintain control and visibility – essential in this dynamic digital economy.”
